A la Carte NRW, nothing to do with gourmet eating

Image
but all to do with art, pencils and horses. Time and inspiration collided and this black and white image came to life.   Inspiration stuck around until the signature made it onto the paper. I love this drawing. Not sure if it's the subtle twist on a classic portrait (rider tightening girth), the look in his eye or all the unfinished edges.
What do you think?

A la Carte NRW pencil on paper 49x31 cm

Two worlds collide ...

Image
Time and inspiration.
They've collided and are creating a noise vision!
They are making a mess on paper and it's ending-up looking like ... a horse!?

Wee note to all fellow artists, when they (time and inspiration) come calling at the exact same time.
Knock on the creativity door with a synchronised bang!
Peek through the same window holding hands.
Let them in.
Go with it!
Rejoyce!
They are not playing any kind of joke.
There is no blue moon.
They are, simply (amazingly), in the same room at the same time.
It's an amazing feeling.
A feeling of speed and lightheadedness.
A feeling of good solid fun.

Not finished, but here to prove my thoughts: the first few steps in the still-to-be-titled-big-portrait-of-beautiful-stallion.
More to come :D 'cause I believe miracles can last (well long enough to get this drawing signed!)
